Being a scientist myself, I am always looking for data on nontradiational careers for scientists.

If you're a physicist, there's a page just for you.

I write regular career articles, and there are useful articles on Lisa's blog (archive only, no new articles). Two of the most popular articles involve Possible Job Titles for Nontraditional Careers and Seven Steps to Change Your Career.
